Wake Up LA: Jose Bernstein Puts Breakfast in UCLA's Mouth
Breakfast of champions pictured above, delivered directly to your apartment/dorm/oral cavity
The first thing you blurt out when you walk into Jose Bernstein's is "it's a fuckin' hole in the wall" because it is a fuckin' hole in the wall". But that's never been a problem for UCLA students because what we lack most are money and holes. But Bernstein's is clean, hygienic and delicious so we do it anyway.
There is a caveat to explain why Bernstein's is a common student destination: they deliver breakfast, it's cheap, and it's sobering. On this particular midnight I was studying for midterms, and as every Bruin knows there is no better time for breakfast. Pictured above is a vegetarian breakfast burrito including eggs, potatoes, mushrooms and guacamole served with chips and holy-fire-in-my-mouth sauce. All of this can be yours for the low, low price of $3.69+tax. Of course there is an $8 minimum so unfortunately you have to wake up your roommate and talk him into a pastrami sandwich and Arrested Development reruns.
The service is fast, getting to your doorstep in 30-40 minutes if you're in Westwood. They're open 7am to 1am weekdays, and close at 2am on the weekends. Sandwiches and burritos are of a large variety and are around $4 or less. Burger combos run around $4, and they serve every little snack food you crave: taquitos, quesadillas, wings, tortas, etc. Oh, and they will pour chili on anything you request which is awesome. They even have a Korean BBQ burrito with galbi in it -- my roommate gets it all the time because he's a sick bastard.
